Since the NFL Forum has a thread for best MNF crew, I thought I'd start one to collect thoughts on the best announce team for nationally televised NBA games.

For me, since they tend to switch it up a lot, basically any game announced by Marv Albert.

I like Marv and Reggie.

Reggie Miller, great basketball player, absolutely horrible announcer. Just horrible.

My favorite would be Doug Collins and Kevin Harlan. Or if we're allowed to reach back, Bob Costas.

Not only did he announce well, but he seemed to always seems to have an acute understanding of the moment as well. More specifically, Jordan's last game as a Chicago Bull in the finals. Costas was brilliant in announcing that game. He nailed the moment so perfectly, just brilliant.

Costas when they had the NBA on NBC. Kevin Harlem and Marv Albert are great too. Guys on ESPN can't really do commentary that well..

Any announcing team with Gus Johnson.
Does more NCAA than Knicks than I would have liked, but they deserve him.

John Barry is terrible. Tonite is proving me point that they need to step up their game and get better ppl.

mark jackson, coach van gundy, mike breen. mama there goes that man

Gotta be kidding me, all they do is talk about anything that doesnt have to do with the game, they go into conversations about other players and other teams and just things that don't have to do with that particular game, so annoying. Mike Breen is pretty good but the other 2 talk so much that you don't even notice.

Bob Costas, Kevin Harlan Doug Collins, and Marv Albert are the best. Really hope Bob Costas comes back at some point.

Also who can forget Chick Hearn! :D

If I had to choose 3 to announce the Playoffs (West or East), and ultimately the Finals, I'd go with Marv Albert, Bob Costas, and Doug Collins.

Marv Albert and Mike Fratello. I also like Kevin Harlan along with Doug Collins, although Collins tends to talk too much and is very boring. Harlan is a good announcer though, I also like Dick Stockton.

i don't know even though van gundy and mark talk about other things they are very entertaining and i love it when they are doing games. i also like reggie because he like to go out on limbs alot. that makes for good entertainment. and bill waton he calls a good game i just don't like how one half a team is winning and hes all on thier nutts and then the next half the other team comes bak and he jumps on thier nutts. but those other guys are kinda boring for the most part. i also don't like any specific team anouncers because some of them are so pro team it get rediculous at times with some of the stuff they say.
